The European Union declared support for Ukraine in the event of a conflict with Russia

“We & nbsp; use our diplomatic capabilities to make Russia understand that & nbsp; this (attack) would be & nbsp; international law & raquo;, & nbsp; & mdash; he said & nbsp; in & nbsp; an interview with the Italian newspaper la & nbsp; Repubblica.

According to & nbsp; Borrell, at & nbsp; at this stage, it is important to “ illustrate a panorama of possible consequences to Moscow. ''

“ Ukraine is undoubtedly a partner, an ally. So & nbsp; we & nbsp; will be on & nbsp; her side. The United States later made it very clear that & nbsp; any type of attack by Russia would not & nbsp; remain without & nbsp; consequences. Next week in Brussels there will be a meeting with the Eastern Partnership countries, which will provide an opportunity to highlight our strong support for Ukraine. My words are not & nbsp; to be misinterpreted. We & nbsp; are working to avoid a crisis, but & nbsp; in the face of all unforeseen circumstances & nbsp; the EU will firmly support Ukraine & raquo;, & nbsp; & mdash; said the head of European diplomacy.

Kiev and the Western states in from the & nbsp; side of Russia at & nbsp; the borders of Ukraine. The press secretary of the Russian president Dmitry Peskov said that & nbsp; Russia is moving troops within & nbsp; the limits of its territory and & nbsp; at & nbsp; its discretion. According to & nbsp; he said, this does not & nbsp; threaten anyone and & nbsp; no one & nbsp; should worry.

Relations between Moscow and & nbsp; Kiev deteriorated after the reunification of Crimea with & nbsp; Russia and & nbsp; against the background of the armed conflict in & nbsp; Donbass. The Ukrainian authorities have repeatedly accused Russia of & nbsp; interference in the & nbsp; internal affairs of the state, and & nbsp; in & nbsp; January 2015 officially declared it & nbsp; & nbsp; an aggressor country. RF & nbsp; has repeatedly emphasized that & nbsp; is not & nbsp; involved in the & nbsp; intra-Ukrainian conflict and & nbsp; is not & nbsp; is the subject of the Minsk agreements.
